3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep cola brown (what, "Gato Marrón Oscuro" was taken?) with an enthusiastic (yet ultimately reasonably well-behaved) three fingers of extremely persistent tan head and heavy lacing. Nose is complex: sour and funky, with cheese-like yeast and sourdough elements, dark caramel malt, hints of liquorice. Taste is similar, but with somewhat more roasty, toasted grain. Mouth feel is fairly light for the colour and intensity, supported by well-behaved carbonation, finishing dry and bitter.
This is challenging. I’m not entirely sold on it, but perhaps with a little more sampling it’ll grow on me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Pours black with floaters but full fluffy head. Aromas of coffee and roasted malts with a sour urine finish. Flavors of dusty dry chocolate, coffee, and light brett with a sour twist. I don’t get bretty/sour dark beers - seems to be at cross purposes.

Small bottle. Pours very dark brown, off-white head. Nose is roast, cheese, and berries. Flavour is berry/cherry, roast, brett but not as much as on the nose. Pretty dry finish. Kind of a tart black IPA... I like it!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle. Looks nice this. It has a really deep deep dark brown, as good as black body and a big fluffy dark brown head with great retention and it’s leaving good lacing down the sides of the glass. On the aroma I get a good amount of sweet licorice. Also lots of dark malts and some cold coffee, but it has a sweet almost candy sweet licorice thing that dominates. Not horrible at all. In the taste however it’s more salty on the licorice. Soft burned malts with a little dark cardboard and molasses. It has a nice oily mouthfeel and a just above average on the bubbles. A little bitter cocoa in the lasting lingering finish. I’m enjoying this more and more. A really interesting one! 19.10.2013

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. Dense, bubbly fawn-coloured head. Opaque near-black body. Dark malty aroma, of coffee and chocolate, added by a delicate tartness. Well balanced taste profile of chocolate malts and fruity tartness. Tart and sweet ending. Fine bodied. Different and appreciated (best of the evening, shared with Finn, Tromsø 05.03.2014).
